Ex 8.2 | Question 8

## Text Solution

**What is known?**

Price of the TV \(= \rm{Rs}\, 13,000\)

Sales tax on the TV \(= 12\%\)

**What is Unknown?**

Amount Vinod will have to pay if he buys the TV

**Reasoning:**

Amount Vinod has to pay to buy \(= 13,000 + 12\%\) of \(13,000\)

**Steps:**

Sales Tax Amount

\(\begin{align}= \frac{{{12}}}{{{100}}} \times{13000} = \rm{Rs}\, 1560\end{align}\)

Amount Vinod has to pay to buy \(= 13,000 + 1560 = \rm{Rs}\, 14,560\)
